These Stromboli's can be served as an appetizer or a main course. Both could also be served with a side of tomato sauce.

4-1 lb fresh or frozen dough
2- 6 oz. package of sliced pepperoni
1 lb. of 98% fat free ham, sliced 1/4 inch in length
2 large green bell peppers, sliced 1/4 inch thick
4 cups Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 egg scrambled
Your favorite Tomato Sauce for dipping

Roll the dough to the size of 19 inches x 6 inches. That length will depend on if you like a thinner or thicker crust. If you like a thicker crust, roll the dough to 15 inches x 5 inches. I like a thin crust. That is what you see in the picture. I prefer to fill them with pepperoni, ham, green bell pepper and mozzarella cheese. You can fill them with anything you like. I do recommend that with any ingredients you may use, always include the Mozzarella cheese.

Scramble one egg and set aside. Once you have rolled out your dough, start layering all your ingredients down the center, starting with the pepperoni and ending with the Mozzarella. Now you can start to close the Stromboli by bringing both sides of the dough around and overlapping them. Then fold the two ends closed. If your dough will not stick together you can dip your fingers into the scrambled egg and run it along the seam.

Place the Stromboli on a greased or lined cookie sheet seam side down. Generously rub the scrambled egg all over the Stromboli’s.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or golden brown.

Serve with a side dish of tomato sauce for dipping. These ingredients will complete 4

Serving the Stromboli as a main course
Cut Stromboli in half and serve with a side of tomato sauce. Serves 8

Serving the Stromboli as an appetizer
Cut into 2 inch pieces and place on a serving tray with tomato sauce. Approximately 80 pieces.

Hints: When cutting the bell pepper into your 1/4 inch slices, slice the two ends off where it curves. The curves have a tendency to puncture through the dough.

  1. oh my these look yummy!!! but you must have tons of patience, making dinner and taking a photo at each stage of the process, but I'm glad you do cause each photo gets more mouthwatering than the previous..

  2. This looks so yummy, do you think I could make it in the afternoon and my Husband could put it in the oven ...I work at night 3 times a week and always looking for make ahead meals.

  3. So delicious! See, I don't know my Italian cuisine well enough.... I would have guessed Stromboli had ricotta cheese in it, but I know calzones do so maybe that is where I get confused. Wonderful recipe and photos.

  4. Looks sooo good! Thanks for sharing the recipe and pictures each step of the way!
